You may need to disable socket pooling under the following conditions:
Socket pooling causes Internet Information Services (IIS) to listen to all IP addresses, and this can present a possible security risk for secure domains with multiple networks. Also, bandwidth throttling and performance adjustments apply to all Web sites configured for the same port (for example, port 80). If bandwidth throttling or performance tuning is being done on a per-site basis, socket pooling must be disabled.
Because DisableSocketPooling is defined as a valid property in the IIS 6.0 metabase schema (MBSchema.xml), you can still set this property by using Adsutil.vbs, but this has no effect. The functionality in IIS 6.0 is part of the new kernel level driver HTTP.sys. To configure HTTP.sys, you must use Httpcfg.exe.
